Saved from a suspicious breeder, Wallace was a dog with so much drive and intensity that he flustered the people and dogs around him to the point that the no-kill shelter where he ended up considered putting him down. But where some saw menace, Roo and Clara Yori saw misunderstanding. After a long fight they were allowed to take Wallace home.

Determined to give Wallace the focus and support he needed, the Yoris stumbled into the world of canine disc competitions—an unlikely place for a big-headed, lumbering pit bull to make his mark. But through the sheer will of his unbending desire, Wallace exceeded all expectations, and along the way he helped salvage the couple who had saved him and became a symbol of hope and potential in a larger struggle.

Get Ready for Takeoff 

Four years ago I met my first pit bull. I had no idea how it would change my life. One magazine cover story and a bestselling book followed. I assumed that would be it. But when I met Roo and Clara Yori and heard the story of Wallace, I knew I wasn't done. Wallace's rise from underdog to image-changer is a much different story than that of The Lost Dogs, but it's similar in some essential ways: it's about second chances, hidden potential and confounding expectations. I hope you find it as enjoyable to read as I did
to write.
